TESTING   SCOUT CRUISERS.
American    Naval    Authorities    Making
Experiments.
Waahington, D. c, Feb. tl.���Much interest is manifested in the Navy Department lu the trial of the new sooul
cruiser Chester, which is to take place
Hi. latter pari of this week off Iho
New Bmglaud coast. The Cheater, with
her sister sbi|is. ths Saia*m ami Birmingham, are of a type entirely na-w-
to the Amerlcun navy. The Chester
ia th.- lirst to have iis trial. The Birmingham will be tried next month, but
tin* Salem has ben delayed ami probably w-ill not have Its trial run until
summer.
The interest in the scout cruisers
lies in tlie fact thut while all three
have tin.* same lines, tin* .saini- tonnage
and the same estimated speed, each lias
motive power radically different from
the others. In these types of ships the
oaval officers win have an excelled
chance to ilgure out for themselves the
relations between the turbine and the
reciprocating engines. Also the recij,-
n.eating a-ngitia-s may be compared wiih
two distinct types of turbine engines
ami in tha.' I.ii.ii analysis to laa* worked
nut the .Navy Department will be in a
pa sltiain to know Whether the old-style
reciprocating engine is tin- aaiuul of
either the Parsons or Ihe Curtis turbine engine.
The Salem is equipped with reciprocating engines, and tha- Chester haa
the Parsons turbine. When all three
vessels have been tuned up a series of
runs will be heid to determine their
relative merits. Tbe results will probably ha,., considerable: Influence in de-

GREAT AUTO RACE
New York To Paris Via
Bering Strait
SiX  MACHINES START
Expect To Cross Three Continents in
Nine Months���Great Send Off
For Motorists.
New York, Feb. I'i.���Six automobiles
started from the Times square at 11.15
a. m. on the race to Paris by the way
of Behrlng Straits. The departure was
Witnessed by a great throng of people
uiul the racers were followed up Hroadway by several hundred automobiles.
The Blx automobiles contesting In the
.New York to Paris race started from
the Times square. Forty-Second street
and Hroadway ul 11.15 a. m. today anil
were cheered by a throng of several
thousand persons. Accompanied by
more than two hundred motors of all
descriptions the racing machines made
their way up Hroadway aud Riverside
drive to the city limits where they
turned north on the road to Albany.
From that city the route to San Francisco, which is the objective poiut of
the lirst stage of the trip, lies across
New York state to Huffalo, thence
through Cleveland and Toledo to Chicago, to Omaha, Ogden, Reno, Ciolalllelal.
San I-nii.... Obispo and San Francisco.
Mayor Mt-Cle.lan waa to have given the
word to start, but he was delayed and
Colgate Hoyt, of the Automobile Club
of America, took bis place.
All traffic ln the neighborhood of
Times square was slopped halt au hour
before the siart. Automobiles clogged
the Intersecting streets and lined the
route for many blocks. No such aggregation of machines has been seen iu or
aboul New York siuce the last Vanderbilt cup race. A band in the official
grand stand played the anthems of the
nations und the cars lined up for the
start. A pistol shot seul the contestants away amid the cheering of the
people and hoarse hooting or hundreds
of auto horns. The contesting cars are
the queerest looking machines ever devised for motoring purposes. Willi their
heavy equipment of stores nnd camp
utensils, several were a modern representation of the prairie schooner. One
resembled a hook and ladder truck with
long running boards on either sides
eajulpped with picks, shovels, ropes and
a alozen other articles. The clothing of
tlie drivers varied from laluck bearskins
to pure white fur, the outllt with head
dress of a French team. Three French
cars, one Ciertnan, one Italian and one
American started in the race. Three
men constituted the crews of the foi
elgn machines, but there were only two
ln tlie American car, the three French
cars are steered by O. Uourcier Si
Chaffray, _ Goddard and M. Pons, the
German car by Antonio Scarl'ogllo, und
the American car by .Montagu Roberts,
All of tlie machines carried the Hag of
their own nation, uud that of the United
States. They were plentifully decor*
ataal wilh signs and placards so there
could not bo uny mistaking their identity whenever seen. The buildings surrounding the Times square were decorated with Hags and bunting.
Estimates vury as to the length of
time the raoe will require. From six to
nine months il .s believed will be con*
Burned. All tbi* drivers are confident
of reaching their destination through
the llelals of Alaska and Siberia. Steamers will transport the machines from
San Francisco to Vftldez, Alaska, nnd
from Nome to East Cape, Siberia,
across  llohrlng  Strait.

SOVEHtluNjiM CASE
Wreck   Believed  to   Have  Been  Caused
by Big Loan to Alaskan Railway Promoter.
.Montreal, Feb. IS,���There is a story
t;oiug in tinaneial circles tnat gives the
explanation**, and every financier be-
Ji* res it is nearly right, of the liquidation of the Sovereign bank, whose head
oilice waif here.
The story turns practically on the relations that existed between Mr. Frost,
an American financier aud railroad
builder, living in the States, and Mr.
Stewart, who was then general manager of the bank, and tbe stock broking
iirm iu Toronto of Francis, Osborne A.
Co.
.Mr. Frost had two great schemes in
his hand and was badly In need of
money. lie had an Alaskan railroad
proposition, in which he proposed to
build a railway fro-m the Alaskan port
in the United States, about 150 nilles
inland, to coal lields and gold fields,
that are now heing worked.
At the same time he had a scheme
under way for a high-class electric road
between Chicago and Milwaukee, known
au the Chicago _. Milwaukee Railway.
To carry on these schemes he was most
anxious to get money, and he found
it impossible to get it iu the United
States.
in some way he opened up negotiations, as it is supposed, with the above
mentioned Ann of Toronto stockbrokers, and it is believed that Mr. Osborne
01 this tirm negotiated with Mr. Stewart ol  the  Sovereign  bank.
it is further stated, and the state-
nu ut is couiiinied here, that Mr. Osborne borrowed about $2,U00,0uu from
.Mr. Stewart of tiie Sovereign bank on
the security ot a block of Alaskan Railway bonds. This was t ipposed to be a
Strictly tall lean, and that at any minute ihat .Mr. Stewart asked for the repayment of the money, it payment would
be made; but when the bank wanted
its money .t could uot get it. Shortly
after it tried to get back this money,
tbe other bank*, were called in, a rearrangement was made, Mr. Stewart
retired, and .Mr. Jarvls, the well-known
stock broker of Toronto, and Mr. Jeni-
niett, formerly ol the Hank of Com*
ii,etc ���, were pitl in charge of the affaiis
oi' lhe Sovcrei!*n bank.
As soon as these two gentlemen got
Into office they .saw this call loan ot
two millions which bad not been realized, and they Instated upon payment,
or, if payment was not forthcoming,
then   further security.
According to the story down here,
further security was forthcoming in the
shape of a large block of the bonds of
the Chicago ami Milwaukee railroad,
which Mr. Frost had in his possession.
With these bonds, it is also believed,
there went a very considerable portion
of the common or bonus stock of the
Chicago and Milwaukee railroad. These
two securities, viz, the Alaskan bonds
and the bonds and stock of the Chicago
and Milwaukee, are much larger than
12,000,000; Indeed, if the bonds of the
Chicago anil Milwaukee could be told
there Is enough In them alone to pay
over $2,000,000; but of course every
thing depends on the value of these
bonds and the prospects of the road.

TROTTING   RACE   RULES.
American  Association  Meets to  Discuss
Proposed Changes.
New York, Feb. 12.���The regular biennial congress of. the National Trotting Association met at the Murray Hill
Hotel today, with the wise men of the
harness racing wond gathered to discuss the laws of that sport. The meeting is looked upon in racing circles as
one of more Lhan ordinary interest. It
s the twenty-fourth meeting in the his-
ory of the association, and all changes
,iade in tne x>r^sent rules and all new
.ug.slation enacted will be in force for
.ne  next two  years.
Most important of the proposed changes iu the rules is the one regarding
the giving of a matinee where admission is charged. It is probable that the
i ule adopted by the American Trotting
association last year will be followed.
This will permit any club in membership with the N. T. A. to give a three
days' matinee meeting and charge admission without the horses incurring

The matter of racing two and three-
year olds will be taken up hy the association. Many of the members believe that a rule is needed to permit
two and three-year olds to race In
three heat races, instead of three in Uveas tbe rules of the organization now-
read. Another matter that may be
i.rought up at the meeting is tlie proposal to license all drivers of the N.
T. A. This rule was in effect some
years ago, but was later repealed. Those
in favor of reviving the rule argue that
the system of running tracks in licensing every jockey and trainer has proved
of much benefit.

Preparation for the next Dominion

British Columbia especially cannot afford in in- stultified by such representatives as tha* sa-ven now at Ottawa.

EXEMPTION OF  RAILWAYS.
The siaeech from tho throne at opening of the present session of the legislature contained the iollowiug party
graph:
"With the aim of encouraging and expediting railway construction, it is
proposed to exempt from taxation for a
period of ten years from tlie time of
completion, certain railways already
i-uthorized. To do tills you will be asked to pass an act empowering the government to grant such exemptions."
Opposition was of course to be expected. Suspicion is always aroused
wheu a government asks a legislature
to surrender any part of its power. As
a general principle, requests should be
very rare and should ouly be uiaale
uuder exceptional circumstances, it is
impossible not to smyputhize with the
complaint of opposition members that
they are asked to give a biank endorse-
xnent to future acts of which at present
they know nothing, aud to delegate to
the ministers a part of their own duties
to  their constitueuts.
The questions to be answered are:
Is it necessary? and Is it justified'/
All will agree that railway construction is urgently required ln many parts
of British Columbia, and that without
some substantial encouragement such
construction is not likely to be undertaken at a very early date.
There are people who denounce any
proposal to aid a corporation by money,
land, exemptiaan or any other means.
It is a favorite attitude of leaders of
opposition. The same people are always ready to condemn a government
which falls, even ln such circumstances,
to secure tlie undertaking of such works
of development.
That is an Impossible attitude. If
we   want  railways   built,  we  must  be
prepared to pay something for them.
There is always a financial risk in the
building of a line, and the certainty of
a period of unprofitable operation. No
corfaoration is going to build as a work
of charity or philanthrophy. The work
is of benefit to the people of the district served and of the province as a
whole. There Is no Injustice in askim.
the beneficiaries to contribute in some
way to the cost.
The second question ls wnether tlie
negn, iatlons that must precede any
agreements can be better handled by
the cabinet or by the whole legislature.
On this point there is hardly room for
serious controversy. The legislature's
proceedings are open to the public and
are in fact published. The cabinet's
meetings are secret. The cabinet Is,
in fact, In the position of a board 'if
directors. It can negotiate with heatls
of corporations without the handicap of
publicity.
Similar conditions arise In civic councils. It has been found again and again.
in Nelson as well as elsewhere, tha, the
full council ls at a great disadvantage
in arranging an agreement with a corporation because the council's deliberations are public. Such matters are invariably left to committees, or even to
lhe mayor alone.
That Is practically what the provincial legislature Is asked to do now, to
delegate such duties to lhe cabinet without demanding Immediate information
and justification of every step.
As to possible dangers, there Is of
course the risk that the Interests of the
province w-ill be betrayed by the cabinet. That risk Is incidental to democratic governments. No one Imagines
that Premier McBride and his colleagues
are going to be false to their trust
The confidence of tbe people in their
ability and integrity was expressed a
year ago in a way that was neither
hesitating nor ambiguous. It is rather
hypercritical  for the  opposition  ln   the

WIRE DIAMONDS MADE?
Eminent    Scientists     Still      Believe    in
Lemoine in Spite of His Conviction for  Fraud.
Paris,   Feb.   12.���Paris    Ih   never   for
long without its lotwatioiij nnd the pail
few wci'i.K bave developed one of ihe
Hint order. Haa Henri Lemoine dls-
eovered how to nianufactuj'u diamond.-.7
Thla in the -great Question thut in u��i-
tating the boulevardefH, and, indeed,
that in inten-Htiiitf people all over ilie
World. It will hardly he fettled BflBlnSl
the ehilnis of Ihe inventor, even hy un
adverse verdiel in lhe proseeiitioii of the
Inventor by Sir Julhii Wernher. Proved
guilty of fraud or cleared, Lemoine tan
produce witnesses of onimpeao���abh
character to swear thai they saw hip
manufacture the diamonds. In the face
nf testimony of this kind, of what avail
v: equally trustworthy evidence to depone that th" thing id impo^i-dhlc, and
iin* diamond- some Lj.t conspirator ha'
purchased) to be switched into niH mysterious crucible at a i.i. irni u moment?
.Lord Armstrong, for .���x.niijile. i-ays
"1 am fully fc--.t-i-d.ee that M �� cnolne
has really discovered tbo Philosopher's
Stone. Like St. Thomas, I have seen
and touched- and I have now jtho absolute conviction that M Ltmoine is i
uenius, and that what ho asserts is
correct." In omnpany with several
other witnesses of standing. Lord Armstrong was present at one of Leinuinc's
experiments. The inventor passed
lound a paper of brownish powder, and
then asked Lord Armstrong to place it
in a little electric crucible. The heat
was turned on, M. Lemoine Btanding
some distance away from the furnace
to avoid the appearance of evil. Later
on the crucible wus removed from the
furnace, plunged In water and opened
by   Lord   Armstrong  and   others.
Inside was un agglomerated mass,
which contained a number of small diamonds of the purest water. Lord Arm-
strung und another -gentleman are prepared to swear there could be no trickery, but two other witnesses are equally stive that there was a sleight-of-hand
trick. There iB no doubt in anyone's
mind that diamonds were produced
from the crucible. The question is,
were Ihey put in us diamonds or powder? A chemist who believes in Lemoine declares that as the crucible was
heated to 3.0U0 degrees centigrade, no
finished diumonds could withstand the
beat, but would crumble'into graphite.
This witness does not believe Lemoine
to be a person worthy of trust, but his
belief in the artificial diamonds remains
unshaken, despite the inventor's supposed moral deficiencies.
The foregoing facts and possibilities
have transpired as a result of Lemoine's
attempt to get Sir Julius Wernher, one
of the directors of the De Beers company, to become his partner in the
manufacture of diamonds. It was three
years ago that Lemoine, a Frenchman,
;!7 years old, met Sir Julius, senior
partner in the London firm of Wernher
and Belt For some time the millionaire did nothing but laugh at the claims
of his enthusiastic young acquaintance,
but finally he was induced to attend a
demonstration. True to his word, Lemoine manufactured the* diamonds.
which Wernher had tested by his own
experts. Staggered by the possibilities
revealed in the experiments. Sir Julius
lost no time in making-secret arrangements  with Lemoine.    The former was
to supply the inventor with working
capital, amounting to $.:20,000, which
was to be used in the construction of
a laboratory. The proceeds of the business  were to be equally divided.

Dnionlst* success in Che Hoss ali\ isiam
of Hereford bye-elections, wherein Capt.
ciiva, beat lils radical opponent by o���t
a thousand, ihus regaining the seal ba
had held from 11100 until he was swept
away with the general landslide or his
party at the elections of Just two years
ago. has further elated t ii<- tariff .'���
fomeM, who have now entire control
of the machinery of the Unionist party.
'Ihelr icmurkahli- success at Mid-Devon,
a couple of weeks ago. when a Liberal
majority was turned Into a reform victory by well over a thousand majority,
lias now heen followed up hy this triumph in a representative county seat.
The worst blow the Unionists suffered
at the last general election was the
loss of the rural seats, and ludieati'ins
aro that the Tory party ls now regaining its old lime supremacy in the county constituencies.
Tariff reformers now claim with some
reason that theirs Is the only paaliry
which lias a chance of success and they
point to the recent bye-elections as in*
alicatious that they will win out at the
next general election, which is expected
for Ihe autumn of next yeur. Notwithstanding tile powerful support of Lord
Cromer, the free food adherents of the
1'nionist party, already ousted from all
official control of its destinies, have
been practically wiped out as a cou-
trollng factor in the political situation
by the series of bye-elections which
have demonstrated emphatically that
the working class is slowly but surely
coming round to a belief that their ultimate salvation lies with protection,
which has made the proletariat of
France, Germany and even the United
States, the most comfortable and even
wealthiest of any period in history.
Speaking for tlie official Conserva,ive
organization. Sir Alexander Acland
Hood declares that tariff reform will
sweep the country at the next general
election.
